    This is the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe that I follow. I've tried many over the years and keep coming back to Hershey's. I add a little extra flour, but bake them only 8 minutes for a delicious soft cookie that my boys appreciate!

    These were the best cookies I have ever made! Be sure to take them out a little earlier than your supposed to so that they don't get to hard.
